It is light and cute, easy to hold and use
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This smart phone caught my attention when i was browsing a ton of smart phones that T-mobile provided 6 months ago. I personally like light and small phones. For a touch screen phone, Samsung behold II has a perfect size for my hand to hold and type. It has three desktops to display different widgets and apps, very convenient. Also, as an android phone, it has a set of google apps, which i like very much, like Google sky map, Google maps, gmail, and so on.
Excerpt: This is a great smartphone for a busy mom. I love that I can add the Google calendar widget that syncs with my Google account. I have my agenda (and email) where ever I go. I also have a to-do list that will nag me until things get done, and a notes app that also has been really handy. It comes with a 5 megapixel camera which is great. The keyboard is on screen which took a little while for me to get used to but now I like it.
Excerpt: The best thing about this phone is the camera, it takes great pictures. I have had problems with it here and there. I've have had to have my cell phone company replace this phone 3 times with a new behold II due to the amount of problems I was having. It did do things such as erase pictures from my phone, freeze up, and not ring when I received calls. Which I later found out was because my phones software was not updated.
Summary: I bought this advertised as 'New - Never Opened'. Well, it wasn't because I found food crumbs in the battery compartment and wipe marks on the back cover. Now, on to the good points... This Android phone has one of the best battery lives I have experienced - I can go 2 full days + with average talk, data and texting. With just talk and no data or texting, I can easily get 6 days without charging.
Summary: the behold is a nice little phone. it has a bright responsive touch screen. nice stock apps. average processing speed. a decent battery life. there are a few annoyances with it though. the automatic screen lock will turn on while you are watching videos. there aren't a whole lot of options for how long the screen stays bright.
Great phone...just wish os update was still avaliable
10 March 2011
Summary: I love the android os! Just wish it was a newer version...unfortunately my phone did not recieve the upgrade to version 1.6 and according to tmobile it is no longer available....otherwise I love the phone. Easy to operate and understand. I read up on alot of the forums about issues. If you purchase this phone don't use the samsung sd or a sandisk sd card and use a card that is at least class 4 or higher and this will save you the issues experienced with the sd card as...
Summary: I have used this phone for several days now and overall I like it. The processer seems a little slow (compared to my iTouch) and the set up menus are not as intuitive as I would like. I love the bright screen display and all of the different widget options. I even have better signal strength than with my previous other brand phone being able to make call places I didn't have signal before.
Summary: Phone's slim design is great. good quality; sensitive, functional, good camera, but quick battery draining (last barely a day) Comes with Android OS 1.5; Samsung declared to provide updates up to Android 2.x; however, later they changed mind to only provide update of Android 1.6. Otherwise, the phone is great and I'll rate it 7.5/10 with limited update.
